    Agreed that the guy shouldn't have run after his intruder.

    But dayum... that's about 10 minutes from me. I used to live in that area. It's not a good place to be, especially when it's dark.
    Yes this area is bad.

    Security Guard Shoots Burglary Suspect

    HOUSTON - A security guard who was driving to his workplace is forced to use his gun when he finds a teen in his vehicle.

    The 23-year-old man was driving the vehicle at approximately 2 a.m. Tuesday onto Clarewood Drive from Alder Drive when he saw an 18-year-old man in the back seat and had begun to struggle with him.

    Investigators say the security guard shot the teen suspect once in the leg. The teen was taken to a hospital.

    The security guard, who had a license to carry the gun because of his job, was not hurt.

    How was he "forced" to use his gun?

    OK I'm confused. Y'all Texans are always bragging about how the law lets you shoot near about anyone, even chase them down and shoot them for theft, but it is not applicable here?

    Is that because the BG didn't steal anything? I could argue that a stranger in my back seat is up to all kinds of trouble that could be considered more serious than theft.

    Not in Dallas or Houston. Our mayor is very anti gun.

    I have worked as an Armed Security Officer. Please, PLEASE don't call us "Security Guards". Just because we weren't sworn LEO's doesn't mean that we are a bunch of 'village idiots'. Many of us have College educations and have served in the military. A great number of us know what we are doing, and perform (or performed) our jobs well and with honor. We often put our lives in jeopardy and took our jobs VERY seriously.

    Thank you.

    Always, always, always: check the car's seating areas before entering a car blindly. It takes only a moment, but can make all the difference between going home that night on your own two feet, versus going "home" in a pine box.

    So many I have met in that profession are. At least, in the unarmed end of the pool.

    That stereotype came from somewhere, and I'm sure it came from a higher than average statistical occurrence of such folks.

    None of which is to suggest all are that way, nor you.
